#JusticeForRhea: Bollywood celebrities share Rhea Chakraborty's T-shirt message on patriarchy with hashtag

Mumbai/IBNS: Actress Rhea Chakraborty's arrest in the death case of Sushant Singh Rajput has triggered a parallel debate on "patriarchy" on social media, besides the hashtag demanding justice for the late actor.

While visiting the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office, Sushant's girlfriend Rhea, who is in the eye of the storm and the prime accused in the death case, on Tuesday wore a dark-coloured T-shirt with a message, "Roses are red, violets are blue, let's smash the patriarchy, me and you."

As the line on patriarchy flashed on television screens, several Bollywood personalities took to social media to share Rhea's T-shirt message, indirectly claiming the actress was a victim of the so-called patriarchal society.

With #JusticeForRhea, senior Hindi film actress Vidya Balan shared the message on Instagram.

A section of social media users came out in support of Rhea on Sunday after she was mobbed by journalists on her way to the NCB office. Many have also considered Rhea as a victim of the media trial.

NCB is the third central agency to join the probe into the death of Sushant, after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The NCB got into action after the ED came across chats pertaining to drug consumption, procurement, usage and transportation in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.

As per NCB sources, Rhea, who had earlier denied consuming drugs during television interviews, has confessed to do the same along with Sushant. 

After quizzing the actress for three consecutive days, the NCB on Tuesday arrested Rhea whose bail was later rejected by the court.
